The nature of politics hampers progress in many areas especially when it comes to suggestions put forward by various committees.
This is the view of Professor Ramesh Deosaran, who has been on several Cabinet committees in the past few years.
He says the issue is that the Opposition seems to always be at odds with the Government.
Professor Deosaran meanwhile spoke on the issue of crime and the methods being employed by Police Commissioner Gary Griffith.
The former Chairman of the Police Service Commission was speaking on TV6 this morning.
